Young bald eagles are known to wander about in their first few years and that is true of a fledgling bald eagle from Norfolk, Va that was banded with purple leg band “MB” on June 12, 2015 at Ocean View Elementary School. On July 4, 2015 “MB” was observed and photographed by Mr. Charles Schell at Montauk County Park, NY on the eastern end of Long Island. Mr. Schell again photographed “MB” on July 9 at the same park and has given his permission to use his photos in this post.
You can read more about “MB” in an earlier post on this site on June 12. Many thanks to Mr. Schell for being so observant, sending his photos to The Center for Conservation Biology and allowing us to use them.
